Weekly Photography Assignment: Birds

Each week we’ll be giving you a theme that you can submit a photo for, and we’ll choose our favourite to be featured on the Nature TTL website. Participating in these assignments will be a great way for you to force yourself to push the boundaries of your photography and improve together as a community on the website.

Week 144: Birds 

Our theme this week is Birds. To celebrate our feathered friends, try your hand at bird photography. You could photograph birds in flight, behavioural sequences, ducks on a lake… anything! Just make it creative and more than just a “snap”. 

Here are some tutorials to help you:

To enter your photo to this assignment, add it in the comments below this post. By submitting your photo, you are giving us permission to feature your photo the following week if it is chosen as one of our favourites. Please keep images under 2MB in size otherwise you may have difficulty uploading them.

Last Week’s Favourite

Here is our favourite submission from last week’s theme, Black & White. You can view all of the entries here.

This week’s winning photo is by Marije Rademaker. Her photo shows a gorgeous brown bear surrounded by fall colours in Finland. The position of the bear and trees all work perfectly in a rule of thirds composition. An excellent shot!
